    That was definitely fan interference from the video I saw this morning. Now I dont know if they had that view on their replays but its kind of a straight on angle so it's hard to believe they wouldnt have.

    I was listening to the radio call and didn't see it live, but every angle I have seen since makes it look like Betts' glove is back and over the wall by the time they make contact.

    It is just one of those things that stings in the playoffs, but in those situations, I am always of the mind that our pitching could have been better, and then it wouldn't matter, so I am not as mad as some people.

    I can see both sides of the argument.

    If you're being honest and remove bias from the equation and watch the replay in slow motion, you can clearly tell by the trajectory and by the height level that Betts was on track to make a play on the ball.

    I have no doubt that he would've made contact with the ball, but he never gets that chance because as soon as his glove hits the crowd, his glove closes and he never gets a chance.

    So if you look at it that way, it's interference.

    However, it's past the wall and as AJ Hinch said, the umpire is assuming that Betts is going to make this amazing play.

    Is he capable of it? Sure.

    But it's a stretch to just assume he's going to make that play, and so I get why the Astros would feel cheated in that instance.

    Ultimately, I think it's one of those calls that could easily go either way and you're going to upset one team or the other no matter which way you go.

    Well to put a smile on your face I will remind you that at least you dont have an idiot outfielder play too shallow in no doubles defense. That should ease the sting a little.

    Wow.

    Price is out-pitching Verlander and now Devers hits a 3 run shot.

    It's the Red Sox year.
